Kabuki brush for perfect coverage

I’m not an expert when it comes to face brushes for foundation.  In fact, I only started using them recently with the introduction of mineral foundation in my makeup routine. 

Initially I started out purchasing those that are out in the market made of pony hair.   The results are fine but I thought I’ll give kabuki brushes a try since it is said to be the perfect complement to natural mineral cosmetics.  I was interested to see the difference it would make.  So I purchased Erth’s Chrome Kabuki Brush since it is their best seller made from goat and sable.

I decided to give Jurlique Herbal Recovery Mist a try after hearing some rave reviews on the product and I have to say I am not at all disappointed.  

This is an excellent mist which is so easy to use and yet works more than a pick-me-up.  While it is water based, it contains potent herbal essences to deeply hydrate and balance my face.

It’s liquid based, being milky in texture but is ultra light leaving a sheer natural finish with no white residue nor sticky feel.  Because Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ containts sebum-absorbing powder to control oil and shine, skin actually feels powdery upon application.  Yet, this sunblock does not clog up pores, works well as a makeup base with the face staying shine free for a good part of the day.

UV protection for our hands & arms

I admit that I’ve been kind of lazy in taking care of my hands and arms.  Apart from applying hand cream, I’ve only started religiously applying sunblock on my hands and arms these two years after I noticed some age spots growing on them. 

Seriously, this part of our body is a tell tale sign of our age.  We can have really good skin on our face but if our hands are all wrinkled up and our arms are covered with age spots, that’s a dead giveaway.
